Dubious Unnamed Sources & The Media Circle Jerk

The media spent three years dropping “bombshell” after “bombshell” story alleging that, according to their anonymous sources, DJT would eventually be indicted for having colluded with the Ruskies to swing the 2016 election. So it's no surprise at all that the left, just like a junkie grabbing a new fix, jumped on dubious anonymous sources in a New York Times story claiming that certain 'unnamed members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team' are unhappy with how the Attorney General had portrayed their concluded investigation.

According to the Times’ famous 'anonymous sources', which have a long track record of being wrong, no real details were given as to their concern. The lack of clarity is not surprising given the source. Despite the spuriousness of these allegations, the Times’ far-left base have bought the allegations hook, line and sinker. No one seems to question why they waited so long to voice concerns. Guess it takes time to set up those late night clandestine parking garage meetings with reporters.  The social media sewer have been posting a new hashtag of “bombshell” stories that hint at some sort of clandestine cover-up,  and of course, CNN's Fredo Cuomo is excited and the Ricky Maddow mouthbreathing conspiratorial paranoids are loving this coverage and about to pee themselves.

There's been 3 years of anonymously-sourced “bombshells” journalists spend 16-24 hours tiring themselves out celebrating on Twitter, only for it to fizzle into nothing. Why not have one more? Now that the Mueller Distraction-by-Persecution of Trump has failed, the usual gang of momzers and miscreants need something to rally around in their darkest of times.

In the meantime, the political theater continues in the committees of the House of Representatives Grandstanders and Charlatans.

Rice Crispies

Susan Rice is starting to feel the heat, with growing demands that she be subpoenaed and investigated. It is clear from what we've already learned that Rice was abusing this privilege to maintain extensive surveillance of the entire Trump campaign to help Hillary.

Former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova revealed the extent of Rice's illicit surveillance activities of Trump and his aides when he was running for president:
"What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals."
Affirmative Action Negro Years
Because of such revelations and the obvious fact that details from the calls of those unmasked were promptly leaked to the press, there is a growing chorus of demands to place Rice under official investigation.

Even Cuckservative and "Never Trumper" Lindsey Graham said that Congress should look into Rice's conduct. Now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the House Intelligence Committee has officially asked Susan Rice to testify under oath.

Yes, the heat is on and Rice is in the oven, getting nice and crispy. But she is only small fry. The big question is how far implicated in this example of "banana republic" politics are the Clintons and Barky Obama? And CNN can keep their heads buried in the sand all they want. But the Heat is On.

Has Hillary Become Just Red Meat?

Hillary Clinton's troubles continue to mount: from falling poll numbers, rumors of Clinton Foundation corruption, email server scandals and congressional committee investigations, people high up in the intelligence community leaking stories to the press, word of an Obama instigated backstabbing in way of a DOJ investigation, and rumors of a possible indictment looming.  We also hear from released email just how vicious this woman and people around her can be.  Last June, leaked emails revealed that Hillary henchman Sidney Blumenthal had orchestrated news stories undermining Caroline Kennedy while she was vying to be appointed to Hillary’s Senate seat in 2008.  A thread back to the Clintons had been unprovable until the Guccifer hacking disclosed incriminating emails.
"Blumenthal, who made his bones with Hillary by sliming Bill’s intern Monica Lewinsky after it became public knowledge she had been performing her services under the desk in the Oval Office, really outdid himself smearing Caroline. Blumenthal had an arrangement with Tina Brown where he could, as a freelance consultant, commission stories to be written for the Daily Beast. 
He generated stories kneecapping Kennedy including two pieces critical of Kennedy, one referring to her as a “puppet” and the other describing her candidacy as an “insult”  because the Clinton's feared that if she secured the Senate seat she could become a rival for power. Brown, a longstanding Clinton ally, facilitated the smears. She now says she was unaware Blumenthal may simultaneously have been on the Clinton Foundation payroll. 
Kennedy's timely endorsement of the little-known Barack Obama over Hillary in 2008 was significantly helpful in him gaining the nomination.  It's said Caroline Kennedy is furious over the revelation that a confidant of Hillary Clinton secretly sabotaged her bid to become a Senator and Kennedy may seek her revenge by backing veep Joe Biden if he runs for president.

Is it any wonder democrats are starting to turn on her, and saying things in private they not dare say in least not yet.  They smell blood in the water and she's losing support daily with the drip drip of news of this woman's dealings, and is about to be exposed for what she is, a vicious uncouth politician, and criminal. 

And the more we learn, the more she becomes red meat for people the Clinton's have wronged over the years, and for the natural enemies she made by aligning herself with the Obama administration.  When the fall finally comes, it's not going to be pretty at all, and an opportunity for Clinton enemies to feed publicly on the the blood of the fresh red meat.

Putting the Squeeze on Ma Clinton

By Monica Crowley  
The Clintons have never taken a political hit lying down. But given their weak and panicky reactions to Mr. Obama’s current, well-orchestrated hit on her — the FBI investigation into her alleged mishandling of classified material as secretary of state — they have appeared to passively absorb the escalating attack.  Until now. 
As he presses his attack, Mrs. Clinton has two choices. Option one: fold early and negotiate a mild end to the investigation in exchange for dropping out of the race. But Mr. Obama is not a forgiving sort, and now that he’s drawn blood, he’s likely to go for the kill.
That suggests that the Clintons are going with option two: fight him — as part of an elaborate, unspoken negotiation between them over their secrets and futures. That requires a plausible defense. Their go-to strategy has always been to blame others, or inanimate objects such as documents, servers, “processes” — and to designate a fall guy (or gal) to take the rap.
This is the well-worn path they now appear to be pursuing to try to escape Mr. Obama’s ever-tightening political and legal vise.
According to a well-placed source, the four known documents at the center of the FBI investigation are deeply problematic. (They came from a relatively small sample; with each new email dump, there are more questionable documents.) Some of the documents appear to have had no original classification markings. A critical point: the federal government classifies by information, not by marking; that is, if a document contains obvious classified material, ie. information provided by a foreign government, it is automatically considered classified, even if it isn’t marked as such. Mrs. Clinton knew this — or should have.
 Initially she claimed unequivocally that there “was no classified material.” She now says, “The facts are I did not send nor did I receive material marked classified.”
This appears to be the basis for her defense: that some of the documents’ classified markings were removed or changed — without permission — before she saw them. 
By whom? There are only three people who were close enough to her to have had that kind of access:

Hillary vs. Judicial Watch

A strange, but predictable thing happened on the way to Hillary’s coronation. What happened that’s hurt Hillary most is that she reverted to Clinton form. She’s unlikable. She’s been secretive. She’s acted like the rules don’t apply to her. That’s before she pissed off the MSM with her petulant behavior.

In short, Clinton’s handlers let Madam Hillary be Madam Hillary.

She might’ve gotten away with it if she hadn’t been the most corrupt Secretary of State in US history, and because she didn’t want to deal with FOIA requests and set up the private email.  That was exceptionally stupid decision considering the fact that Judicial Watch’s mission is to hold people accountable. Judicial Watch isn’t a little mom and pop organization. They’re well-funded and they’re tenacious. They’re well-equipped to file one lawsuit after another, which is what they’ve done.

As a result of Hillary’s corruption and Judicial Watch’s tenacity, Hillary can’t afford to treat this like a coronation any more:

"Amid concerns about Mrs. Clinton’s softening poll numbers and her exclusive use of a personal email server as secretary of state, she will interrupt her Hamptons stay next week to travel to the Midwest and try to shift attention back to her campaign message by unveiling new policy positions
She will then return to the Hamptons, where she and former President Bill Clinton are renting a beach-side estate in Amagansett that costs $100,000 for a two-week stay, and will attend several $2,700-per-person fund-raisers hosted there by her wealthy friends."
While there’s no indication yet that Hillary won’t be the Democrats’ nominee, there’s more than enough information, mostly in the form of swing-state polls, that suggests she could very well get beat in the general election.

The basis for those swing-state polls is that she’s a) totally unlikable, b) untrustworthy and c) she doesn’t relate to the average person. That’s hitting the trifecta…if you want to lose. It’s understandable that Hillary’s campaign wants to take the attention away from the emails by switching to friendlier turf. Their problem is that she’s alienated the media and she’s insisted that she be treated like royalty.

That’s the perfect path to stopping a coronation.

The Fraud on America is Now Fully Revealed

by Robert Janicki

How can we forget Nancy Pelosi telling America in 2010, "But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."

Well, now we know what's in it and this confirms it was a fraud.  Now we have found out how the fraud was perpetrated on the rest of America.  Warning:  If you voted for Obama or supported Obamacare, you aren't going to like finding out that you were played for a fool by liberal progressives in the White House, the Senate and the House.
New video has surfaced of Jonathan Gruber, the MIT economist hired by the Obama administration to help craft the Affordable Care Act, bragging about the designed lack of transparency in the law, which, he suggested, played on the "stupidity of the American voter." - FreedomWorks 
Watch the video as Jonathan Gruber lays it all out.  The Obama administration purposely committed a fraud on America in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed.  Remember, not one Republican in either the the House or Senate voted for Obamacare (ACA) and it becomes painfully obvious with this revelation why Obamacare should be repealed.  The Obama administration needs to be held responsible for this criminal fraud on America.

Homeland Security Panty Raid

With the security of America in shambles, it's good to know Homeland Security is keeping us safe from illegal underwear.

via 100% Fed Up
A lingerie shop owner in Kansas City says her store was raided by Homeland Security agents Monday morning over a few dozen pair of panties she made in honor of her hometown baseball team. Peregrine Honig, owner of Honig’s Birdies Panties shop in Crossroads, said she designed the Lucky Royals boy-shorts that were set to go on sale Tuesday.
That is until federal agents showed up at her door and demanded she surrender the illegal undergarments.
“They came in and there were two guys” Ms. Honig told the Kansas City Star. “I asked one of them what size he needed and he showed me a badge and took me outside. They told me they were from Homeland Security and we were violating copyright laws.”
The panties, printed in Kansas City by Lindquist Press, read, “Take the Crown,” with “KC” across the bottom, the newspaper reported.

Obama is Becoming Nixonian.

"One of the more interesting political/psychological pastimes these days is to watch how President Obama deals with his crumbling presidency. The answer is: Not well.
What is worth paying increasing attention to, I think, is the emotional state of the president. It’s in front of his donors that his most authentic feelings seem to surface, and it’s clear he’s becoming increasingly isolated, embittered, and thin skinned. His excuse making is now chronic and habitual. He’s even displaying some signs of paranoia. Everyone is against him.
Obama is becoming Nixonian.
The man who by a wide margin has received the most worshipful press coverage in at least the last half-century is complaining that the press is mistreating him. A president who routinely misleads the public on matters large and small, who first ran for president on the promise of unifying America but governs based on dividing it, and who allows the most important national-security matters to be decided by crass political considerations is blaming others for feeding cynicism.
Watching a narcissist struggle to deal with massive, multiplying failures can be a poignant thing, especially when everyone gets what’s going on except the narcissist and his enablers. When this happens to a sitting president, however, what is poignant becomes alarming. Because it’s always better that the president of the United States live in reality rather than creating his own."

As We Prepare to Say So Long to Another Junior Varsity Affirmative Action Obama Administration Member....

The Most Corrupt Attorney General in American History

The 7 Most Ridiculous Things Eric Holder Has Said and Done

Attorney general has become a controversial title. The nation’s top cop, the attorney general is supposed to take the lead in enforcing federal law. But no attorney general appointed in modern times has become as much of a lightning rod as Eric Holder. Appointed at the beginning of President Obama’s first term, Holder was controversial right from the beginning, and finally he has announced that he’s stepping down. Let’s take an opportunity to remember some of his most truly outrageous moments.

Racial justice in New Haven:
When the New Haven Fire Department announced that it had openings for firefighters, an exam was administered for qualified applicants. A number of test-takers passed, but there was a problem: none of them were African Americans. On this basis, the city of New Haven declared the test results null and void. Outraged, eighteen of the men who passed the test sued the city, demanding that the results be honored.

Attorney General Eric Holder filed a brief in support of the city of New Haven (though also arguing that the case should be remanded to a district court). The Supreme Court ultimately disagreed and ruled in favor of the firefighters. African Americans face real discrimination, but Holder’s decision to intrude into this case was unnecessary and itself supported a discriminatory position.

Behaving like a child:
Congressman Louie Gohmert got the opportunity to cross-examine Holder in 2012 over the Boston Marathon bombings. Gohmert and Holder had a tense exchange that ended with Gohmert bungling his words and declaring, “The attorney general will not cast aspersions on my asparagus!” Fast-forward to 2013 and Gohmert and Holder were going at it again. Holder ended his side of the argument by sneering, “Good luck with your asparagus.”

Yes, the attorney general of the United States of America waited an entire year to come back to the House of Representatives and taunt a sitting congressman over a verbal flub. Our country is truly in the hands of five-year-olds.

Eric doesn’t know, Eric doesn’t know:
Speaking of congressional testimonies, Eric Holder was repeatedly summoned before various committees over the years, usually related to one of the many scandals that plagued his department. Holder usually responded by mimicking a mid-level manager who had just started his job earlier that week, scratching his head and saying he just didn’t know. After one his testimonies before the House Judiciary Committee, the Washington Free Beacon put together a montage of Holder in all his unknowing glory.
Only sitting Cabinet member held in contempt of Congress:
This one mostly speaks for itself. After months of Holder stonewalling over the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal, withholding key documents and staying tight-lipped during testimony, the House GOP had finally had enough. They voted to hold Holder in contempt of Congress, making him the only sitting Cabinet member in American history to achieve that distinct honor.

The effects of this can’t be understated. As a result of the contempt charge, at any point the House could have sent in the sergeant-at-arms to arrest Holder and hold him in prison. They also could have prosecuted him in order to force him to provide the outstanding documents.

Spying on and intimidating journalists:
A good Justice Department should seek to enforce the First Amendment. Not so Eric Holder’s. Thin-skinned and tyrannical, the attorneys under him aggressively seized an enormous number of phone records from the Associated Press regarding their publication of a story about al Qaeda in Yemen. When the scandal broke, Holder assured the House Judiciary Committee that he’d recused himself from the AP incident and had never been involved in the prosecution of a journalist.

Not long after that, it was revealed that Holder had, in fact, gone after a reporter: Fox News’s James Rosen, whose emails the DOJ seized. The agency also speculated, almost casually, that Rosen could have been prosecuted under the Espionage Act for reporting on North Korea—also known as “doing his job.”

“I’m proud to be an activist Attorney General”:
In an August interview with Juan Williams, Holder boldly proclaimed that he was proud to accept the label of “activist attorney general.” He also declared: “Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job.”

Later, he defiantly added that critics who say his department includes an “activist civil rights division and this is an activist attorney general — I’d say I agree with you 1,000 percent and [I am] proud of it.”

Drone ‘em at home too — actually, never mind:
You may recall the controversial secret memos drawn up by Judge David Barron, which provided legal justification for the Yemen drone strike that killed American citizens without a trial. This underhanded justification, along with the appointment of CIA Director John Brennan and an alarming letter from Eric Holder, sparked Senator Rand Paul to speak for 13 hours in a filibuster.

“It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States,”
Holder wrote in the letter.

Holder would backtrack on that shortly after the filibuster and ruled out drone use on American soil.

I pray the integrity of the Department of Justice and the Enforcement of American Law becomes a major issue in the coming 2016 Presidential Election.

GAO Puts a Hitch in Obama's "git along" Over Legality of Bowe Bergdahl Prisoner Swap

by Robert Janicki
I can imagine Obama fuming over this latest rebuff to his "I have a pen and phone" style of administrative tyranny.  What I'm not certain of is whether it will have practical application that will result in anything more than a footnote in the history of the most corrupt administration in American history.  In all likelihood the GAO may not have any responsibility other than the reporting of the illegality of the action by Obama and his henchmen  In the end it may be all about politics and a lot less about the law.

from NRO
"President Obama violated a “clear and unambiguous” law when he released five Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the Government Accountability Office reported Thursday.
[The Department of Defense] violated section 8111 because it did not notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the transfer,” the GAO report said. “In addition, because DOD used appropriated funds to carry out the transfer when no money was available for that purpose, DOD violated the Antideficiency Act. The Antideficiency Act prohibits federal agencies from incurring obligations exceeding an amount available in an appropriation.”
Our marvelously inept and incompetent Secretary of Defense was complicit in this illegal act, but then again why would anyone expect Chuck Hagel to step up and object to Obama's plan.  I'd really be surprised if Hagel can walk and chew gun at the same time.  Hagel was the shame of Nebraska as one of its Senators for two terms with an absolutely meaningless and unproductive career as a Senator.  He had very little in the way of authoring any legislation, let alone anything of consequence.

It's obvious from the following that the Obama administration was leaning on the GAO to acknowledge that the ruling law in question was to be viewed as unconstitutional so as to provide cover for Obama.  However, that would have been a bridge too far to cross for the GAO, since they are not a court, but rather an administrative oversight agency with questionable powers to enforce any of their findings of wrong doing.
"The GAO rejected the idea that the action was legal and sidestepped the Obama team’s suggestion that the law is unconstitutional.
“It is not our role or our practice to determine the constitutionality of duly enacted statutes,” the report says. “In our view, where legislation has been passed by Congress and signed by the President, thereby satisfying the bicameralism and presentment requirements in the Constitution, that legislation is entitled to a heavy presumption in favor of constitutionality.”

6.9 Million Multiple Voters on Roles in 28 States

Gaming the System
Some 6.9 million Americans are registered to vote in two or more states, according to a report obtained by
“Sensible approaches to roll maintenance are fought tooth and nail by radical special interests who can use the duplicity in the system to their advantage", says Catherine Engelbrecht, president of the election-watch group True The Vote. The cross-check program involves only 28 states and does not include the three largest: California, Texas and Florida.
“Duplicate registration is an open invitation to voting fraud,” said Clara Belle Wheeler, a member of the Election Board in Albemarle County, Va. “This ability to vote more than once dilutes the legal votes and changes the results of elections.” The interstate cross-check program matches first and last names and dates of birth to identify multiple registrations.But the data are not routinely used to purge duplicates.
“Increasingly lax standards in our election process produce increasingly unreliable results,” Engelbrecht asserted.
“The few conversations that are had about how to shore up these weaknesses are immediately seized on by certain politicians and special-interest groups as fuel to further divide American voters based on trumped-up race and class-based narratives....
"The vicious cycle can be fixed if citizens wake up, stand up and refuse to settle for a broken system.
SBE officials, who provided the cross-check data in response to a Freedom of Information Act filing by the Virginia Voters Alliance, did not respond to Wheeler’s assertion. 
Two national voting-rights groups — the League of Women Voters and America Votes — did not respond to Watchdog’s requests for comment.

Sick and Tired of Being Lied to by this Pack of Bastards

The same pack of rats that take your house or your bank account
if they don't get what they demand...

The Internal Revenue Service says it can’t produce e-mails from six more employees involved in the targeting of conservative groups, according to two Republicans investigating the scandal.

The IRS recently informed Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp and subcommittee chairman Charles Boustany that computer crashes resulted in additional lost e-mails, including from Nikole Flax, the chief of staff to former IRS commissioner Steven Miller, who was fired in the wake of the targeting scandal. Lerner’s e-mails rekindled the targeting scandal and today’s news has further outraged investigators.

As noted at NewsBusters, ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer,” “NBC Nightly News” and “CBS Evening News” all neglected the bombshell on Monday night in favor of stories about Starbucks, Britain's little prince and the always newsworthy Alex Trebek.

"Missing" Emails?

"A growing number of computer professionals are stepping forward to say that none of this makes sense. Norman Cillo, a former program manager at Microsoft, told The Blaze: 'I don’t know of any e-mail administrator [who] doesn’t have at least three ways of getting that mail back. It’s either on the disks or it’s on a TAPE backup someplace on an archive server.' Bruce Webster, an IT expert with 30 years of experience consulting with dozens of private companies, seconds this opinion: 'It would take a catastrophic mechanical failure for Lerner’s drive to suffer actual physical damage, but in any case, the FBI should be able to recover something. And the FBI and the Justice Department know it."
"Normally, an independent prosecutor would be appointed to get to the bottom of all this. But don’t expect such a move from Attorney General Eric Holder. When he was the No. 2 official at Justice during President Clinton’s second term, he was instrumental in blocking the appointment of any new special prosecutors for various Clinton scandals. - John Fund, NRO
